. [cheers] no one could tell it as well as michelle obama, as you did last night, on monday night. i know him from a different perspective. i know him and i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to the future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day. i didn't see him and sound bites. i walked 30 paces down the hall and i see him. i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit piece sledgehammer. all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some in the previews. highlight, highest job losses in 60 years. headlines, economy on the brink. it's plummet -- markets plummeted worldwide. he knew he had not only to restore the confidence of a nation but he had to restore the confidence of the whole world.

it the walkthrough. they get to practice a bit on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa
antonio mayor jewulian castro a will wrap up with a speech by first lady michelle obama. tomorrow will include speeches by massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton followed by the delegate roll call to nominate president obama for a second term. >> did you see the article in politico about how elizabeth warren is a star here but is having trouble gaining traction in massachusetts. mike, you said it a long time ago, she is a national star for the democratic party but in her own state she's trailing by 5 points and there a lot of democrats that always vote democrat that like brown. they say he's one of us, he's what we would say in the south a good ol' boy. he's not exactly good ol' boy but he talks like those guys who call into boston radio stations bitching about the red sox. that's his persona. i don't know if that's really him but he's got it now. >> again, these two guys can tell you, maybe buttress this point of view, massachusetts is more than cambridge and beacon hill. it's a very moderate state once you get past 128, the outer beltwa
